Our story begins in the magnificent lands of Peru
Our story begins in the magnificent lands of Peru, where our founders, sisters Mariella and Lia, were born. They learned about the ancient Incas and their predecessors at a young age, and how their ancestors worshipped the land and developed some of the most sophisticated agricultural systems of our time. From the very beginning, the sisters believed in the direct correlation between the strength and hard work of the Inca farmers, and the vitality that what is known today as superfoods gave them as a result.
In 1988, Mariella moved to Canada and started a family, while Lia remained in Peru and eventually opened an organic and gluten-free bakery with her daughters. It was Lia’s tenacity and passion for natural, organic products that connected her to sustainable local farmers and food suppliers, eventually leading her to integrate these natural superfoods into her product offering.
The Benefits of Organic Foods
Later in Canada, one of Mariella’s daughters started consuming organic foods, and she opened Mariella’s eyes to not only the benefits of consuming organics, but the adverse effects that chemicals, hormones, and antibiotics have on our bodies and the environment. Not long after, Mariella’s whole family followed suit. Their newfound passion for organic foods and their benefits was a turning point in their journey to a healthier lifestyle.
During a family trip, Mariella and Lia were sharing ideas about the importance of organic superfoods in a healthy and balanced diet – and it sparked an idea! Their knowledge, along with their dedication to their Peruvian heritage and their passion for sustainability brought upon the beginning of Miski Organics®.
Today, Miski Organics® is a proudly family-owned and operated Canadian company dedicated to sharing the benefits of organic superfoods and providing families with a growing selection of exceptional products, “From the heart of the land to the heart of your home”®.
